A special shout out to Girl Scout Troop 10778 members Abby, Emily, Amanda, and Celina who chose to help Abandon Pet Rescue for their Cadette Silver Award. This is the second highest award a Girl Scout can receive. The girls built two cat towers, made hundreds of toys, collected donations and donated funds to help rescue animals.

New Comprehensive Spay/Neuter Initiative Unveiled

BROWARD COUNTY, FL - BrowardPetFix. That's the name of Animal Care and Adoption's comprehensive spay/neuter initiative.BrowardPetFix includes all spay/neuter programs designed to service Broward County residents and reduce the number of unwanted pets throughout the community.

The programs include sterilization options for owned dogs and cats, as well as programs specifically for Community Cats (cats who are not socialized; are part of a cat colony, or do not have an owner). On September 11, 2015, the Board of County Commissioners amended Broward County's Chapter 4 ordinance to include Community Cat management programs in order to reduce the uncontrolled reproduction of neighborhood/Community Cats.

"BrowardPetFix plays a critical role in the County's goal to become a No Kill Community," said Thomas Adair, Director, Broward County Animal Care and Adoption Division.  "By identifying and sterilizing at-risk pets in our community, we can reduce reproduction and subsequently diminish pet overpopulation in our community."

Programs for Owned Dogs and Cats

SNIP PROGRAM
SNIP replaces the former SPOT Program, which sunset last year. The voucher-based program is open to all Broward County residents who have an owned dog or cat. SNIP services include spay/neuter surgery; a rabies vaccination, and a Broward County Registration License Tag.  SNIP sterilization services are provided through a network of veterinary providers. Broward County residents must apply online to the program at Broward.org/Animal

To ensure that the SNIP Program application is accessible to all residents, Broward County Animal Care has partnered with Broward County Libraries to provide online computer access to the program.  Pet owners who would like to apply to SNIP will be able to use a computer at any of the 33 Library branches throughout the County.

PORTABLE STERILIZATION UNIT
Animal Care's specially designed portable sterilization unit provides sterilization services in the community for owned dogs and cats, as well as Community Cats.  The custom portable unit was created by the FORTS company in Coral Springs and is the first of its kind in the nation to be used for pet spay/neuter surgeries.

Sterilization services are provided by appointment only. SNIP participants who have received a voucher, may have their pets sterilized at the unit, which is currently stationed at Delevoe Park, 2520 NW 6th St., Fort Lauderdale. The Humane Society of Broward County has partnered with Animal Care to provide the surgeries.  Spay/neuter services can be scheduled by calling the Humane Society at 954-463-SPAY.  

The special sterilization unit will stay at Delevoe Park for approximately 6 months and then move to another targeted location within Broward County where the need for spay/neuter services is high.

Programs for Community Cats

TRAP-NEUTER-RELEASE (TNR)
Broward County Animal Care has partnered with a number of veterinary clinics to provide spay/neuter services for Community Cats.  Through TNR, Community Cats are sterilized; vaccinated against rabies; ear-notched, and returned to the neighborhood in which they were found. 

RETURN-TO-FIELD (RTF)
Healthy Community Cats, who enter Animal Care's Adoption Center, are sterilized, receive a rabies vaccination and then placed back into the neighborhood where they were found.  Returning sterilized cats helps keep new cats from entering a community and helps reduce nuisance behaviors.  The program's goal is to reduce the number of outdoor cats over time through sterilization. Socialized adult cats who are healthy will be spayed/neutered and then placed into Adoption.

To apply to the SNIP Program, or for details regarding any other BrowardPetFix program, visit Broward.org/Animal.

IMAGINE A FUTURE... HELP BUILD IT NOW
shelter banner

Abandoned Pet Rescue is your community no-kill animal shelter and you can be proud of it.
APR needs the support of all who care about its future. Donors like you play an essential role in keeping Abandoned Pet Rescue’s doors open and the animals in perfect health. With your gift, you are helping to ensure a future for this unique community resource for many generations to come.

 

 

 

Now Abandoned Pet Rescue is taking on the task to build a new concrete wall to expand its outdoor exercise area for the animals. The wall, with your help, will be used to offer tribute to the people and animals who support APR.

 

 

 

Help us complete the wall by purchasing an engraved Metropolitan Quarry Tile in honor of your dog, your cat, your family, in memory of a loved one or your pet, a community volunteer, birthdays, weddings, graduations, anniversaries, your company or organization. Each sponsored tile will be a visible part of the APR Wall of Memories. All proceeds raised from the commemorative tile program will be used to help build the wall and support the daily operations of the shelter.

LET'S HELP PETS' BROWARD HELP ALL ANIMALS!!

 
 

All it takes is 1 minute to save thousands of shelter pets...

Now is your chance to help Broward's Shelter pets!
 
As you know, the situation at our Broward shelter is dire. Not only do we have unqualified and uncompassionate management but our commissioners have yet to fund the 2012, unanimously passed, No-kill resolution which would call the shelter to implement successful no kill programs to save lives. Programs which have been proven to lead to No-kill communities in other counties. Since 2012, over 20,000 shelter pets have paid for this mismanagement and lack of compassion with their lives AND too many more will pay if we do nothing to bring these issues to light. Pets' Broward is doing all we can to save our pets, but now we need you!
 
Pets' Broward has started a petition to our County administrator and commissioners urging them to hire a qualified and compassionate shelter director with No-kill experience and asking them to fund the No-kill resolution they passed in 2012.
 
Join over 1000 people who have signed and shared our petition already. SIGN and SHARE today! Let's show our commissioners we're willing to speak up for our pets! Don't forget to tag us in your shared posts with @petsbroward and #petsbroward !

Thanks to the Camden Multi-Family Communities family for their hands-on support of APR during their Pet Palooza month.
Camden Las Olas residents volunteered their time and skills painting, cleaning, and fixing a number of items needing extra man power at APR.  They spent five hours, helping with the laundry and deep cleaning each of the outside pens and inside rooms at the helter.  They were also able to help address a major concern for the facility by properly cleaning dryer vents and a/c coils to ensure the equipment was efficiently working and helping keep cost down. 
 
Camden communities are pet friendly and do not have any weight restrictions.  Thanks to the folks at Camden who are making the shelter a cheerier home for the animals.

Thanks Sopranos for a great APR FUNdraiser!
